  • The role of Service in Atlas Copco: Ian Cockett IAS Business Line manager – Service – Atlas Copco
    Ian Cockett is an experienced Service Director having shared his experiences of leading service businesses at Bosch and Cygnet Texkimp with the Service Community. Now he has offered to the host the event and will give us an insight of how services are a key element in making businesses as ‘humble’ as fasteners and assembly solutions, so profitable.
  • Disrupting the Service Supply Chain through additive manufacturing: Alexander Bours & Henk Jonker –  DiManEx
    We all can see how 3D printing and additive manufacturing has the potential to change the service supply chain, but beyond that there is minimal discussion. DiManEx will chair a discussion with the attendees on the potential for disruption and potential solutions based on their extensive experience on Additive Parts management.
  • Role of Digital in developing a Contract Services business: Iain Crosley – Managing Director – Hosokawa
    Iain has long been pioneering the integration of Digital Technologies into manufacturing processes, and is heavily involved in the Smarter Manufacturing initiative and with Lancaster University.

Hosokawa is a global leader in the powder processing equipment innovation.
  • Using Advanced Analytics to solve Service Problems in the rail industry – Martin Summerhayes, Head of Service Delivery & Improvement at Fujitsu UK
    We hear a lot about Artificial Intelligence, but rarely do we get a chance to hear in detail, how a service business can use advanced analytics to improve customer loyalty. Martin will talk about his journey from Business Problem to developing and implementing a Data Solution that dramatically helped improve service levels.
  • Achieving Service Excellence using a new British Standard (PAS 280) – Phil Wardle – Blackwater Innovation Ltd
